JOYFUL, JOYFUL, WE ADORE THEE 

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee 

God of glory, Lord of love; 

Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, 

Opening to the sun above. 

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness, 

Drive the dark of doubt away; 

Giver of immortal gladness, 

Fill us with the light of day. 

All Thy works with joy surround Thee, 
Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays, 
Stars and angels sing around Thee, 
Center of unbroken praise. 
Field and forest, vale and mountain, 
Flowery meadow, flashing sea, 
Chanting bird and flowing fountain, 
Call us to rejoice in Thee. 

Thou art giving and forgiving, 
Ever blessing, ever blest, 
Well-spring of the joy of living, 
Ocean depth of happy rest! 
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, 
All who live in love are Thine; 
Teach us how to love each other, 
Lift us to the Joy divine. 

Mortals, join the happy chorus 
Which the morning stars began; 
Father love is reigning o'er us, 
Brother love binds man to man. 
Ever singing, march we onward, 
Victors in the midst of strife, 
Joyful music leads us Sunward, 



In the triumph song of life.

SAVANNAH STATE COLLEGE HYMN 

Let us give thanks and praise to Thee, 
To our Alma Mater, S. S. C. 
Thine honor, pride, and eminence, 
We raise in prayerful reverence. 

Guide us still from day to day, 
Be Thou mindful lest we lose our way; 
Help us know that life, short or long, 
Means unceasing work for weak and strong. 

REFRAIN 

Where Savannah meets the Sea, 

Where grassy plains and palms abound, 

Where the flow'rs are gems of loveliness, 

There S. S. C. is found. 

We adore each beauteous scene and hall, 

Our all we pledge to Thee! 

In our hearts we'll build a shrine for Thee. 

We hail Thee, S. S. C.
